Seahawks-Eagles final injury report: Miles Sanders is 'good;' Zach Ertz not yet cleared

Head coach Doug Pederson met with the media Friday morning for his final press conference before the Seahawks-Eagles Wild Card showdown. There are three crucial members of the offense who have appeared on the injury report as the team preps to host a playoff game. Tight end Zach Ertz (ribs, back) did not play in the Week 17 matchup against the Giants, but he has been a limited participant in practice this week. He is officially questionable for Sunday.

"He is still not cleared for any contact," Pederson said. "He will work a little on the side, like he's done this week. We're waiting on a few doctor results tomorrow (Saturday). If things go favorable, he'll play and if they don't, he won't."

All-Pro tackle Lane Johnson has been out since leaving the Week 14 win over the Giants early with an ankle injury. After not participating in practice for the last three weeks, Johnson saw limited action on Wednesday and Thursday. He did not participate in Friday's practice and is officially questionable for Sunday. Pederson praised Johnson's desire and dedication to be on the field for Sunday's game.

"Lane is still working," Pederson said. "He's a tough guy. He really wants to play in this football game. We're going to find out more today and see where he's at the end of the day before we put out a report. He's working to try to play in this football game."

Lastly, rookie running back Miles Sanders did not participate in practice this week until Friday due to an ankle injury. Sanders had to exit last week's Giants game early in the second quarter due to the injury and did not return. Prior to his injury, he recorded 52 rushing yards on nine attempts.

"Miles is good," Pederson said. "He'll get in some work today, see where he's at. He's been feeling good."

Sanders is not on the Game Status report, meaning he will play Sunday.
